Diabetes patients can improve their condition with exercise

Professor Daniel Koenig from the German Association for Sports Medicine and Prevention has found that people with type 2 diabetes can improve their blood sugar level dramatically through regular athletic activities.  He cited a number of studies which said actively exercising four to five times a week between 45 and 60 minutes can offer a diabetic patient results comparable to taking medication.  

This is promising news as we see the rates in Diabetes climb yearly in our country.  The consumption of processed foods laden with bad fats and sugars coupled with the reduction of physical activity has created an epidemic of obesity.  Obesity and type 2 Diabetes often go hand in hand and often heart disease follows close behind.  Hopefully such news of positive results will inspire such patients to take their health into their hands and make an effort to change.  It is again all about learning a new normal.  Starting can be daunting, but once one begins it becomes a part of life that they cannot live without!

Please encourage your loved ones who are battling Diabetes to take the time to exercise along with beginning a healthy diet.  Type 2 Diabetes is reversible in many cases!  Get up and GO!!!!
